07/05/13 - I had him for chemistry before he left for Michigan. If you do the work, it was an easy A. He has packets for us and keeps us on schedule and we do fun labs. He can get angry sometimes but he's a fun teacher. Show More Show Less

06/16/12 - i'll miss mr.rooney when he leaves for michigan :( he's a great teacher and he actually helps you after school if you don't understand. I love that he knows students would want extra credit to boost their grade up at the end of the semester and actually gives us extra credit for us to do after school. he can be harsh sometimes and i think he expects a little too much for my class but he's a great teacher regardless.

10/27/11 - Awesome teacher maybe just needs to be a little more understand love the accent though. There's pretty complicated stuff in the class but the only way you fail is by not listening to him, and for all you who say he does explain stuff ask him too you morons Im sure he WILL explain it.

10/15/10 - I'm here to comment on his behalf outside of the school. There's a fine distinct line between sarcasm and just pure rudeness. He made a fool out of me numerous times in front of people, and even when I wasn't present. I can honestly say that I've never acted up towards him, ever. He sucks at lacrosse and shouldn't be a coach, has a serious anger problem. He's so lucky that he got to stay this year, this guy may get by with crude jokes inside the classroom but outside he's unprofessional and needs to grow up Show More Show Less

09/20/10 - Mr. Rooney is great. Students only underappreciate him if they don't understand his sense of humor. He's a terrific teacher and is determined to help his students be successful. He grades extremely fairly and is serious about his job. Students just need to show him they care about his class. He'll never turn down a serious question and he'll never deny you help when you need it. He also sponsors Science Club and Peer Jury, which are pretty awesome. Show More Show Less

06/17/10 - Roonayyy! Haha he is so cool. I hear he makes fun of some people (not in a joking way) and it gets out of hand to the point where they despise him. He never was mean to me or anybody really, in my class. He sincerely likes to help students get the most out of his class and I appreciate his help. I reccommend going to tutoring though, since he has it almost every day after school and you'll need it soon enough into the class...unless you pay attention really well. Show More Show Less

06/10/10 - Mr. Rooney is a great teacher. Hands down my favourite out of every teacher I've every had except maybe my grade 1 teacher. He explains things well, gives EC for EVERYTHING and always is joking around when appropriate. He can be harsh at times but that's only because the people he yells at arent paying enough attention to what he is teaching so they don't understand and get upset. He has tutoring after school every day but thursday. USE IT IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND!!! IT HELPS! Show More Show Less
